Other ID: 81-G-14, Leg 2
Organization(s): USGS, Woods Hole Coastal and Marine Science Center
Location: Chesapeake Bay, Virginia, Cape Hatteras, Cape Lookout, North Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, United States, North America, North Atlantic;
Principal Investigator(s): Peter Popenoe
Data Type(s): Electro-Magnetic: Gravity, Electro-Magnetic: Magnetics, Location-Elevation: Navigation, Seismics: Multichannel, Seismics: Sub Bottom Profiler, Sonar: Single Beam
Scientific Purpose/Goals: Obtain a near-shore high-resolution seismic reflection profile in order to both correlate reflections with onshore wells and aid in the interperetation of data obtained in 1979 and 1980 north and south of Cape Hatteras. Obtain a seismic and magnetic profile over the strong circular magnetic anomaly off Norfolk, VA.
